Scripture Lesson: Matthew 2:9-12
Today is the birthday of the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords, Jesus Christ. Jesus came to this world for only one purpose and that was to die for our sins. It is hard to think of Christmas morning without thinking of Good Friday and Easter Sunday. Jesus came to this world to give us the gift of eternal life through His payment for our sins and mistakes by dying on the cross. This gift is indeed the gift that keeps on giving!
Our Scripture lesson today is about the wise mane coming to visit Jesus after His birth. They came bearing gifts. They brought gold, frankincense, and myrrh. These were some of the finest gifts that could be given in those days. Today we will exchange gifts with our family and friends. What gift should we give to the One who gave His all for us? Doesn’t Jesus deserve our very best, yes our lives lived for Him each day?
1. Take a few moments today to reflect on God’s gift to us through Jesus.
2. What does that gift mean to you?
3. What gift do we need to give Jesus today and every day?
I hope this Christmas day is filled with love, family, and a time to give thanks to God for the greatest gift ever given!! Blessings!
